Texas Beats Cade Cunningham, Oklahoma State 91-86 for 2021 Big 12 Championship

The Texas Longhorns have won the Big 12 tournament for the first time in school history thanks to their 91-86 victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday.

The Longhorns advanced to the championship game for the first time since 2011 after Kansas had to withdraw from the tournament prior to Friday's semifinal due to a positive COVID-19 test within the program.

Oklahoma State had all sorts of momentum going into this matchup coming off an 83-74 win over No. 2 Baylor in the semifinal Friday.

Texas did play the Cowboys well during the regular season, with the Big 12 rivals splitting two games.
